The Privilege Page at Meta Stack Overflow says

When should I visit meta ?
  • to provide feedback
  • to report a bug
  • to suggest changes to the community
  • to discuss how the site works

I know what is a bug and what are the suggestions, but why the feedback option is here too as this is already present in footer links. Is there any difference these two feedback options.

    The feedback link in the footer just links to meta, so I don't know why you think there is a difference. – interjay Jun 4 '13 at 13:06

    When you go to the users of you software and ask for feedback, what do you mean? – Oded Jun 4 '13 at 13:08

I would say that feedback in general is the ability to answer existing Meta questions and give your own opinion on things.

For example you can answer a feature request adding your opinion on it, which is a feedback. Might be positive or negative.

Same goes for discussions.

True feedback can be provided on announcements such as this one which are posted to gain feedback in the first place.
